Teeth Extractions in
Dacula, Georgia

At Advanced & Family Dentistry, it is always our goal to save your teeth, but there are times when a tooth needs to be extracted. This may be due to injury, decay, a tooth causing damage to other teeth, or in preparation for orthodontics.

Dental Tooth Extractions in Dacula GA

When providing an extraction at Advanced & Family Dentistry, patient comfort is a top priority. We will be sure to discuss anesthesia options with you before any procedure. Depending on your needs, we offer local anesthesia, oral sedation, IV sedation, and laughing gas.

Before removing a tooth, we will start by taking an X-ray so that we have a clear view of what needs to be done. We will then provide the necessary anesthesia. Using dental tools, we will carefully yet quickly remove the tooth. During this process, you will likely feel some pressure, but no pain. You will then be instructed to bite down on a gauze pad for 30 to 45 minutes to form a blood clot. For the next couple of days, it is important not to disturb the blood clot. This means eating soft foods, not smoking, not using a straw and refraining from strenuous activities.

Once you are home, you can reduce swelling by applying an ice pack to the cheek for about 20 minutes at a time. Once any swelling has gone down, a warm compress can be used for comfort. After 24 hours, you can use gentle warm salt water rinses to help keep the extraction area clean.

Does a Tooth Extraction Hurt?

In most cases, patients feel pressure during a tooth extraction but not pain. If you are concerned about pain during any dental procedure at Advanced & Family Dentistry, be sure to ask us about our Sedation Dentistry options. We are committed to the comfort of our patients.

Are Tooth Extractions Expensive?

Each case is unique. The cost of your treatment will be based on your specific case. If you have dental insurance, your extraction is probably covered - check with our knowledgeable team to make sure. Also, be sure to ask about our financing options.
